Sea Safety Advice

The RNLI believes, and its service return information confirms, that a very large majority of lifeboats services can be attributed to a group of reasons, which can be summarised, as preventative activities.

  1. Wear a lifejacket
  2. Check your engine and fuel
  3. Tell others where you are going
  4. Carry some means of calling for help
  5. Keep an eye on weather and tides
  6. Get proper training, and boat within your limits

There are many other pieces of advice related to boating safety that are covered within the CD-ROM of Sea Safety, The Complete Guide, available free from www.rnli.org.uk/sea safetyor 0800 328 0600 (UK)
